Photo 101 Day 5: Everything in 3’s

Everything in my life seems to happen in three or multiple of three.

In my co-ed fraternity, I was #9 in my pledge line. My big brother was #3. One of my little brothers was #15. My niece and daughter were both born on 09/15. All multiples of three. Perhaps, aside from 17, it seems that my lucky numbers are destined to be a multiple of 3.

For today’s topic, I am not quite certain if I met the “rule of thirds” criteria. I do use the shooting grid when I take pictures on my iPhone 5s. And I do consciously try to line up my shot sort of perfectly when the grid lines. But for the most part, I do not because I’m too busy worrying about if the picture itself is going to be too noisy. Sooooo I’m just going to let you guys tell me if these pictures fit within the “rule of thirds.” If not, please let me know what I can do to get better.

Nerdtastic, Write?

I am an aspiring writer trying to find my place in the world. Writing makes me happy, save lives much like coffee, and keeps me grounded. To honestly know me is to understand my way of thinking, my quirky, sarcastic side comments, and left uppercut verbal jabs and side-eye death stares. I’m simplistic but can often be very complex in nature. I love life to the absolute fullest, but I am human; therefore, I have more than my fair share of ups and downs. I am a giant kid, so being goofy comes naturally to me. I secretly strive to be the next Ernest Hemingway, J.K. Rowling, Zora Neale Hurston, or Shonda Rhimes. I openly and stupidly wear every bit of my heart on my sleeve and refuse to apologize for or minimize my true, unedited feelings.

  1. The second photo fulfills the rule of thirds perfectly in my opinion. The first photo is one of those where you have to break this rule a little. Perhaps a vertical orientation would help so you could have the path leading off to the upper right quadrant of the grid? That becomes the focal point. The trees do follow the grid lines, so I think you have done a good job here. Some photos work better with the focal point being in the middle. ( a close up of one flower for instance). This is just my opinion and what matters is how you feel about the photo. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
